About the Cut: Ham

Cured ham is leg meat that has been dry- or wet-cured. Hams are labeled according to the amount of water added to the ham during the curing process. Because the leg muscle is a well-exercised part of the hog, ham is surprisingly low in fat.

Butcher's Tips

All varieties of cured ham are either boneless or bone-in. Bone-in hams are traditionally considered more attractive and boneless are considered easier to serve because of simplified carving. Bone-in hams are available in a variety of shapes - whole or as a shank or butt half. Boneless hams also are available in a variety of sizes.

There is way too much liquid for the amount of ham and sweet potato -- 3 cups total but only 1 2/3 are accounted for in the directions. I added cheese to thicken it and then threw away about a cup of cheesy liquid when putting it in the pan with the crust.
